A hearty hello from the Hello Kitty Online Team! First off, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Abby Reyes, known to many of you as the fry-loving GM Abby, and I currently work on content, events, and community design within the development team.

I’m here on a special mission, because we’re starting something new here on the HKO blog. I, on behalf of the development team, will be posting regular updates on what’s happening in the game, what we’ve been up to, and some insights on upcoming releases. We will also be addressing concerns that come to our attention from our community. From this day forth, this section shall be known as the HKO Developer’s Diary!

With that said, I’d like to start off with a letter to our players. The past few weeks have been insightful to us, as we’ve gathered some feedback and suggestions about recent updates to the game, and are amazed at the urgency by which certain concerns were raised. This, above everything, tells us how devoted our players are to Hello Kitty Online.

I’m pleased to say that we have been working behind the scenes to improve certain aspects of the game.

Economy
For starters, we’ve been crunching numbers like no tomorrow to address issues with the economy. Ultimately, we want players to feel rewarded for their hard work in the game, and the colorful charts tell us that we’re heading in the right direction. Expect these changes to come out very soon.

Monster Stats and Targeting
We’ve also been looking into our monster stats, and we would like to assure everyone that we are hard at work to balance the system out. Also, we are exploring ways to lessen frustration with the targeting system. We can’t let those critters get away with their mischief – we’re on your side!

Rest assured that we will be rolling these updates out as soon as possible, and we hope you enjoy the upcoming changes. We love hearing from you, and we hope that this strengthens the bond we have with you, our dear players. Thank you all for your continued support and for playing Hello Kitty Online. Until next time!

Hello Kitty’s birthday is almost here! Starting today, Hello Kitty Online will be hosting a massive event where fans all over the world can get together with their friends to celebrate, have fun, and get limited-edition virtual items, all in preparation for the big day on November 1, 2009!

Hello Kitty's Birthday party

Here’s the quick version: from now until November 1, 2009, collect as many Birthday Tokens as you can. These tokens are used to redeem special limited-edition items. You need to be wearing at least 4 of these items in order to be admitted to the main event, which is Hello Kitty’s birthday party in London on November 1!

Birthday tokens
You will want to collect as many Birthday Tokens as possible. You get tokens for completing special 35th anniversary quests and by participating in social party activities. Getting tokens is easy, so get as many of these as you can and exchange them for limited-edition Hello Kitty items in the game!

Hello Kitty Birthday Items
To celebrate Hello Kitty’s 35 years of bringing cuteness to the world, Hello Kitty Online is offering in-game versions of official Sanrio merchandise! These Hello Kitty Birthday Items are collectors’ pieces, as they can only be obtained during this special event. The Party Master NPC will trade your Birthday Tokens for up to 23 limited-edition items. Alternatively, you can buy up to 22 items from the Item Mall. You need to be wearing at least 4 different Hello Kitty Birthday Items to access the main party on November 1, so get those as soon as you can! You certainly don’t want to miss out on these limited-edition items!

Special Birthday-themed quests
All the Sanrio characters are busy with preparations for the party, and they’ve decided to make special floats to celebrate Hello Kitty’s birthday. But things are far from ready, and they need your help! Travel to each of the main cities (Sanrio Harbour, Florapolis, London, Paris, Beijing). See if you can lend a hand, and your kindness might earn you some Birthday tokens!

New mini-games
This special event introduces new multiplayer mini-games unlike anything previously seen in the game. Mimic the Party Master’s actions in the Emote game, or play Bingo with other players and you could win Birthday tokens while having fun with your friends!

Piñatas
Travel through the adventure maps with your friends and you might catch a piñata or two! They’re really tough to break but, once they crack, up to ten players can loot the goodies hidden inside! The common piñatas hold much-needed Birthday tokens, and there are also special piñatas that carry limited-edition Birthday items that you won’t find anywhere else - so keep your eyes peeled!

The main event: Birthday party in London on November 1
London is the place to be on November 1, but you must get your party clothes before you can attend the hottest virtual birthday party ever! Players must be wearing at least 4 of the Hello Kitty Birthday avatar items in order to be allowed into the party. This is one party you do not want to miss – get ready for even more special events and free treats!

Hello Kitty’s birthday party in London on November 1 will have birthday decorations, Party Clowns, free items, and other special treats lined up, so come join the celebration for our beloved Hello Kitty!

Our plans for world domination continues!  Sanrio fans in Thailand will soon be able to enjoy Hello Kitty Online as C2 Vision Co., Ltd, a leading PC game distributor and developer in the country brings the cuteness of Hello Kitty and her friends to the region!

HKO is coming to Thailand!

The first beta test of Hello Kitty Online in Thailand is scheduled in the first half of 2010.  For more information, you can read the rest of the press release here.

We look forward to seeing you all in Thailand!  We will be releasing more news and updates so check back often!
